Stress is getting more common among the people, especially working individuals in the construction industry due to nature, which related to a wide range of loosely integrated activities, which makes stress becoming an issue of concern. Workplace stress is caused by different types of stress, such as conflicts among colleagues and having personal problems. The factors provide some effects and consequences on the working productivity in the construction industry. This is due to the failure of working adults to recognize suitable stress management skills to be used when dealing with stressful situations. Therefore, this study investigates the level of stress among construction professionals in the workplace. This research has proven that most construction professionals are still facing stress in the workplace, which caused by factors in the organization, relationship, work, and work-home boundary thus, affecting their productivity in the workplace. This research is produced based on an extensive literature review as a basis to identify the stress management skills to be applied to construction professionals. The data was collected by the quantitative method through questionnaires, and the results were analyzed using the SPSS software, and the data were tabulated. Based on the findings, it is concluded that stress is caused by various factors, and it could affect a person's working performance resulting in the low productivity produced in the construction industry. It was therefore recommended that professionals should apply suitable coping skills to develop for a better organization and integration of work within a specified project to be able to cope with stress.
